In addition to presenting turbidity data, we related turbidity data to Secchi depths on the basis of Davies-Colley and Smith (2001), as hydrophyte light limitations have been reported in relation to Secchi depth rather than turbidity (i.e., nephelometric turbidity units [NTUs]).
The protected waterfowl habitats are composed of open water, hydrophyte, helophyte, open grass and mire scrub sub-wetlands in the investigated lake and its riparian zone.
Eutrophication is a phenomenon, in which the excess trophic substances (i.e., nitrogen and phosphorus) in lakes, reservoirs, estuaries, rivers, and certain coastal waters cause a great increase in algae and a decrease in dissolved oxygen, thus, leading to serious death of a lot of fishes and other hydrophytes. A lot of freshwater water bodies have occurred eutrophication in the 1990s [1], and it was the first time for eutrophication began to become the major pollution problem of lakes and reservoirs in most countries such as Europe and North America.
